Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim: "No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men, William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for the largest company in the world."

1972 Buick Riviera STK 87-ATL.mpg
Do you like Buick muscle cars? How about a 1972 Buick Riviera GS Stage 1 boat tail that's both show and go! Not only can you take this bad boy to the local cruise or car show, but it's ready to burst down the quarter mile in 11.5 seconds @ 119mph. A great 7.50 1/8th mile car, pro bracket racer, or even the ultimate sleeper for those late night street battles. With a numbers matching original 455 Stage 1 block, which is the only original piece under the hood. It's now sitting at 494ci pushing out 670hp ad a whopping 707ft lbs of blacktop wrinkling torque! This ultimate beast is the definition of being unique and one of a kind. Stage 1 455 numbers matching block, but that's about it due to this beast of beasts being totally re-done in just about every way imaginable by the southeast's premier engine builder, Al Moody. Bored and stroked to 494CI and attached to a professionally built freewheeling Cohn transmission with everything meticulously gone thru and freshened up. The engine has about 50 passes on it before it was just freshened up and by the way; it's NEVER had any Nitrous. Many TA parts including aluminum Stage 2 ported heads, polished TA intake, with a Quick Fuel 1050 carb with annular Boosters resting on top. Engine block reinforced with a TA block girdle and it was short filled for extra strength. TA solid lifter 284/294 cam, TA roller rockers and a TA stroker crank. Meziere electric high flow water pump, a belt driven vacuum pump, aluminum radiator and a complete MSD 6A set up. TCI 11" Street Dominator 2500 convertor, B&M Pro Stick shifter with a reversed pattern manual valve body. Long large tube headers that mount up to a very beautiful sounding and efficient 3" x-pipe Exhaust system, with cut-outs, that flow thru single chamber Flowmaster mufflers. Large trunk mounted fuel cell with all the best plumbing and a trunk mounted electric fuel pump. The red top battery has also been re-located to the trunk and sits in an NHRA approved battery box and cut-off. Custom Ram-Air designed by Air Inlet Systems out of Hamilton Ontario Canada with 4" box and tubes that breathe thru the center headlamp holes. Ford 9" rear end, 4.11 gears with locker, Moser axles, reinforced nodular case and all HD parts including large studs that was built to be indestructible. 90/10 QA-1 shocks up front and back and the sway bar has been removed. This beast weighs in at an unbelievable 4800lbs with no lightening to the vehicle at all other than the removal of the A/C system. With all that weight, one would think that lifting the front wheels off the ground at launch would be impossible but yet this one does and what an unbelievable site it is to see! Professionally restored by owner of more than 14 years, the two tone charcoal gray metallic and black PPG urethane paint was sanded and buffed to absolute perfection to show off the laser straight body that has never had a spot of rust its entire life. The under-carriage is just as nice and well taken care of as the body and interior of this vehicle. Sporting the exceptional original black leather interior that's still in nearly perfect condition. The front seats are out of a '70 GS stage 1 and the carpet was custom done with matching floor mats with the Buick logo stitched in. New leather wrapped aluminum Grant steering wheel also sports the Buick logo horn cap. Autometer Sport Comp tach with record and playback along with added oil temp and pressure, volt and water temp gauges. A 6pt. roll bar along with Simpson 5pt racing harness keeps you safe and secure. All chrome and stainless on the car is near perfection as well. Sitting on 15" polished Torq-Thrust wheels wrapped in Goodyears with Goodyear Drag Radials out back. This car is being sold with an extra set of Goodyear slicks and Hoosier Radials, both already mounted on matching Torq-Thrust wheels. Come test drive this awesome car and you'll want to go straight to the track to open her up and see just what this beast can do! Don't hesitate on this one-of-a-kind car that will surely win some more show and go trophies. This vehicle is located in our Atlanta, GA showroom.

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Harry Fisher In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice" car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well... above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the baddest hot-rods around.
